Editorial Reviews

The Impresario is a comic Singspiel written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to a German libretto by Gottlieb Stephanie an Austrian Schauspieldirektor. Mozart wrote the opera as his entry in a musical competition sponsored on February 7, 1786 by Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II at the Schönbrunn Palace.

It has been noted that the character and scale of the overture are similar to those of the overture to Le nozze di Figaro, which was written at the same time and premiered later the same year.

The opera concerns the woes of an impresario, Frank, who must put together a company of actors and singers while dealing with their whims, rivalries and pretensions. The company faces economic difficulties which are ultimately solved through the intervention of Eiler, a banker, who is persuaded to Intervene by Frank pretending to engage his lover, Madams Pfeil. The musical passages of the opera occur when Frank begins the auditions of the singers. In the end, the singers and actors determine that art can thrive only through the peaceable cooperation of all their strengths.

Mozart's comic opera is brought to life on stage at the Teatro Quirino di Roma, in celebration of the great composer's 250th birthday. Starring Maria Dragoni and Paolo Briguglia.

After the very scrappy performance of the effervescent overture, it takes nearly 30 minutes of seemingly interminable "acting" until the first "singer" gets to sing. Be advised that the acting & singing are as amateurish as the playing by the orchestra. This DVD on the usually reliable Kultur label should never have been released. Embarrassingly bad.

After the mediocre playing of the should-be-wonderful overture, there is a long, long, long section of dialogue, then just when you think it couldn't be worse, the the singing begins.
Is the singing is awful on purpose--to be funny maybe? Maybe the singers are genuinely awful.
Who can tell, since they never sing any other way.
This opera? performance is so bad it hurts.
